The Girl in the Green Raincoat (hardcover) e-book

by Laura Lippman


For Niki, Claire, Logan, and Nash. They probably would, Crow agreed, bidding Whitney goodbye and placing the iPhone on the stack of books that Tess’s aunt had sent with the chamber pot, trying to anticipate all her moods and whims.

For Niki, Claire, Logan, and Nash. But I’ve already spoken to them about our situation and your dietary requirements for the next ten weeks.

The story was now hot enough for the national crowd. Ethel Zimmerman became the get of gets, holding out for not merely for the Today show, but Matt Lauer himself.

Lippman connects Tess and the green raincoat girl in a number of ways and it's nice to see not only Tess' inner struggle but also nice to get a chance to spend some time with recurring character and Tess's best friend Whitney as well.

Lippman connects Tess and the green raincoat girl in a number of ways and it's nice to see not only Tess' inner struggle but also nice to get a chance to spend some time with recurring character and Tess's best friend Whitney as well. The sequences in the story that take place from Whitney's point of view with Tess off-screen as it were are among the most compelling in the book and will have long-time fans wondering if a novel centering more on Whitney might not be a good idea in the near future.

She’s especially interested in the girl in the green raincoat and her prancing little greyhound. When, later in the week, she spots the dog running through the park alone, she determines to track down the pet’s missing mistress. And what she finds is a guilty-looking husband with two dead wives and a dead girlfriend in his past. I am trying to obtain all of the Tess Monaghan series and some I have not read because I would like to complete my collection. I did, however, read this book and it did not disappoint.

Originally serialized in the New York Times Magazine, Lippman's Tess Monaghan novella turns the intrepid Baltimore PI's at-risk late-pregnancy bed rest into a compellingly edgy riff on Hitchcock's Rear Window. Lovingly tucked up on her winterized sun porch, Tess marshals her forces--doting artist boyfriend Crow, best friend Whitney Talbot, middle-aged assistant gumshoe Mrs. Blossom, and researcher Dorie Starnes--to probe the disappearance of a chic blonde green-raincoated dog walker she'd been watching from her comfy prison. Tess also takes in the missing woman's abandoned green-slickered Italian greyhound from hell, a miniature canine terrorist whose anti-housebreaking vendetta offers comic relief from Tess's threatened pre-eclampsia, her obsessive unraveling of a complex scam, and her last-trimester spats with Crow about their future. Though postpartum Tess turns alternately weepy and shrill, that condition won't last, and this entertaining romp leaves plenty of hints of detective-mother exploits to come. (Jan.)

I’m a fan of the Tess Monaghan Mysteries, but I somehow lost track of the series after 2008’s Another Thing to Fall: A Tess Monaghan Novel . I’m really not a big fan of novellas, but curiosity won out and I gave this one a shot. While I’m not sorry I read it, I do have mixed feelings about this one.

Tess is pregnant and on bedrest for the remainder of her pregnancy. She’s antsy, bored and chafing at all the restrictions put upon her. From her window she notices a woman walking her dog at the same time every day. One day Tess spots the dog running free and suspects that something may have happened to the owner.

Tess investigates as best she can with her limited mobility, but she needs to enlist the help of her friends when it comes to the leg work. Her instincts are spot-on, but is it wise to get tangled up in a dangerous crime when you’re basically a sitting duck?

This story was definitely “Tess Light” – the mystery was mostly just window dressing. All the series regulars pop in for cameo appearances: Crow, Whitney, Mrs. Blossom, etc., and there’s a lot of ruminating on the complexities of marriage and long-term relationships.

I have to admit I was a wee bit disappointed in this story. The full-length novels were gritty and atmospheric and this story was pretty vanilla in comparison. I did enjoy re-familiarizing myself with these characters and am looking forward to the next full-length novel. As a quick read it was OK, but lacked the depth of a typical Tess Monaghan Mystery. “Tess Light” about sums it up.

If you’re new to the series this is not the place to start! Do yourself a favor and start with the first book, Baltimore Blues: The First Tess Monaghan Novel . You won’t regret it.

I read "No Good Deeds" and wanted to read the next book in the Tess Monaghan series. I found "The Girl in the Green Raincoat" and immediately downloaded it to my Kindle. I should have read the reviews. When I finished the book, I thought I had just read a Reader's Digest version of the book. I came back to Amazon to read the reviews, and voila, I found out why. This is a novella, published as a serial formatted story in the newspaper. My own fault for not reading closer to the description. However, it is advertised as a novel and it really, by definition, is not. I would like to read a revised edition with all the spaces filled in. There are too many leaps in time with blanks filled in with just a sentence in passing. I guess I am a detail person and like to know the hows, whys, the whens. I like the story, I'm not sad I read it, I just want more. I am ambivalent now about reading any more Tess novels. I'm beginning to wonder if I like the characters of Crow and Whitney more than I like the character of Tess. Crow was almost an after-thought in this story, hence, only a three star.

Tess Monaghan, a Baltimore private investigator, has been relegated, in the third trimester of her pregnancy, to bed rest in her sunroom. She has an active imagination, and has always been a fan of the movie "Rear Window," so when she notices the routine of a young woman in a green raincoat, she is fascinated. The woman is walking her dog, who wears a matching coat. Everyday, she sees them walking alongside the park.

But then one day, the woman has seemingly disappeared, leaving behind a frantic dog. In her quest to discover what has happened, Tess makes phone calls, and then, when the police seem unfazed by her report, she turns to her laptop to search through the records. She discovers that the woman is Carole Massinger, who was married to Don Epstein, and that this wealthy man has lost previous spouses and a girlfriend to mysterious deaths.

Is Carole dead or is she missing? And is her disappearance connected to the deaths of the other Epstein spouses?

Tess enlists the assistance of best friend Whitney, along with colleague Mrs. Blossom. Then she discovers other intriguing facts about the deceased wives...they were all fairly isolated, and nobody seems to really "miss" them or push for answers to the seemingly obvious questions. A few other facts she uncovers seem suspicious and worrisome.

But what Tess learns next will completely throw her theories out that rear window. Will her discoveries lead to her unfortunate demise? What, if anything, can she do to save herself and her unborn daughter?

A compelling mystery with humor and colorful characters that the reader will want to connect with over and over, The Girl in the Green Raincoat: A Tess Monaghan Novel, was definitely a five star read for me. It was a quick read with great descriptions and dialogue. I would like to follow Tess in more of her adventures.

I discovered Laura Lippman about a year ago and have become a collector of her books. I am trying to obtain all of the Tess Monaghan series and some I have not read because I would like to complete my collection. I did, however, read this book and it did not disappoint. Lippman's gritty prose and engaging plot keeps me reading until I am forced to put the book down. This book was outstanding as all are so far.

It is my intention to keep this short and sweet. If you have NOT read the Tess Monaghan series by Laura Lippman, you should. If you have and are as charmed by them as I am, then this is a great addition. I find precious little time to read these days and over the course of fitting it in when I could this took me about two days. It is short, action packed and fun. Best of all it continues the story of Tess and Crow and includes some of their friends and mentions many others. Reading it was like catching up on old times and sets us up for what is sure to be many amazing changes in their lives. I have yet to be sad when I finish reading a Laura Lippman book other than the sadness that comes when I realize it's over. Fun mysteries, familiar characters and fun filled mysteries. Thank you Laura for time well spent!
